Music, fashion, and beauty icon Rihanna has created a groundbreaking makeup line designed to be all-inclusive. With a global range of shades for all skin tones–from extra fair to intensely deep–she is setting the bar higher for other brands to follow. Her range of foundation shades include all of those in-between colors that I’ve never seen in any other brand, and as a pro makeup artist I’ve seen a lot of brands. If you’re in makeup diva like me, I’m sure you’ll love most everything in the line, from the Kilowatt Freestyle Highlighter to the Matchstix Customizable Trio that includes concealer contour and highlighter, which are both ah-mazing! For the makeup novice however, there are two products in the line that are absolute must-haves. To find out what they are read on!
PRO FILT’R SOFT MATTE LONGWEAR FOUNDATION
This natural Foundation has a buildable, medium to full coverage and is not only long-wearing, but oil-free, sweat proof, pore-diffusing, and comes in 40 shades. Did you hear me? I said 40 shades!! If you can’t match your color with this one, then you can’t be matched. This formula lets your skin look like skin, not a mask. The finish is lightweight and naturally matte, never chalky or oily looking. It’s like having a selfie filter built right in! To match your shade, be sure to shake the bottle first, swatch on your jawline and let it sit on the skin for a moment to see its true color. When in doubt, go lighter. ($34)
GLOSS BOMB UNIVERSAL LIP LUMINIZER
This Universal rose-nude looks good on everyone! The “Fenty Glow” shade conditions and nourishes your lips with shea butter and instantly makes them appear fuller and look smoother–not to mention a shine that won’t quit. Never tacky or sticky, RiRi says she created it because she “wanted girls to get kissed more.” Wear it over lipstick for a sexy pout, or all alone for a naturally luminous look and feel ($18)
